Some says that authentic is kinda boring, why not fusion then? I bet some of you have already heard of Yama & J at Jaya One by now. Just so you know that Yama-san left Kuala Lumpur and headed to New York City at the age of 18 and slowly gained his experience and learned how to make delicious sushis. Now, he is back and set up Yama & J which offers fusion American-Japanese foods to the guest.
Upon entering the restaurant, please don't be surprised or mistaken if you entered a pub for its unique decorated ambiance. It's interesting interior design and perfect for chilling too. You could spot the buffet counter at the side where buffet spread lay nicely on it.
